No, the pandemic did not cause the remote working phenomenon. The American workforce has been a long way off for nearly a decade. Gallup reported in 2012 that 39 percent of U.S. employees work from home in some form.
However, it is true that during the pandemic, the number of people working remotely has grown exponentially, with most offices choosing to move to a completely remote workforce. A number of large companies have announced that their employees will be staying away in 2021. Some companies are investigating permanent work-from-home environments. Faced with this significant long-term change, workplaces must find solutions to connect, manage, and protect all corporate devices.
Companies that rely on Apple devices need appropriate Apple Enterprise Management.
What is Apple Enterprise Management?
Organizations making Apple devices available to their employees need to be able to ensure that those devices are secure, connected, up-to-date, and considered, and that they are providing proper access to employees based on their identity. This is where Apple Enterprise Management comes in. Organizations can use Apple Enterprise Management to unify their fleet of technology devices from a single platform, regardless of where devices or users are located.
With Apple Enterprise Management you can:
Deploy scaled-down, preconfigured Apple hardware to remote workers to keep their computers up-to-date. Set up employee computers with a single username and password to securely access all devices and applications. Manage Apple devices, apps and inventory remotely and automatically. Protect your entire fleet in real time with first-class security.
When you have tens, hundreds, or thousands of machines in your hands, there is an enormous amount of confidential and protected information about your company around the world. With Apple Enterprise Management, you can protect your company and customer data and make your employees' lives easier by giving them optimized access to the tools they need to do a good job.
